Yes - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Famed prog-rockers Yes will embark on a Summer Tour dubbed “YESTIVAL” that is currently slated to run from August 4 to September 3. Each show will feature a setlist focusing on greatest hits from all of the band’s albums up to 1980.

We are looking forward to presenting songs from each of the first nine studio albums, including some surprises,” said Yes guitarist Steve Howe in a statement. YESTIVAL will feature special guest Todd Rundgren and support from Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy. While an initial slate of dates for the run has been detailed, additional concerts are expected to be announced soon.
